Roanoke, VA June 8, 2013: The Western Virginia Emergency Medical Services Council (WVEMS) has implemented a strategy to make EMS Protocols readily available to all EMS personnel via a mobile application for iOS and Android platforms. SiteVision, Inc. will create the mobile application.
The new application means that personnel in the field will have the emergency manual of protocols and procedures instantly available on their mobile devices whenever and wherever required. The protocols give specific procedures for emergency situations based on a clickable comprehensive decision tree in a PDF format. The protocols and procedures range from initial patient care evaluation to exacting responses for diverse airway, cardiac, injury, environmental, OB-GYN and other emergency situations. The manual also includes an updated medication reference.
SiteVision’s role is to create the Mobile application and updates, and to provide application documentation, quality assurance, project administration, testing and deployment to the appropriate platforms. As a major advantage, users will be able to easily download the application from the iOS or Android App stores. Then, as protocols or procedures change and the application is updated, EMS personnel will receive automatic push notification of updates as they occur for immediate downloading.
WVEMS is a regional council under the auspices of the Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services. The combined councils are dedicated to facilitating regional cooperation, planning and the implementation of an integrated Emergency Medical Services system throughout Virginia. The Council is also involved in performance improvement, continuing education and all pertinent EMS related events.
